Last week I did a two part blog post in regards to expositional preaching. In this post I vaguely touched on one stream of the emerging church in regards to their substitute for expositional preaching. This seemed to generate some interest into the overall purpose of expositional preaching and to what degree its purpose plays within the emerging church.
Today I located a free e-book, Preaching & the Emerging Church: A New E-Book | The Resurgence, by John S. Bohannon that takes a look at preaching and the emerging church as a whole. He specifically examines the four key founding figures of the movement: Mark Driscoll, Dan Kimball, Brian McLaren, and Doug Pagitt. Bohannon then breaks the book into three parts. Part one takes a general look at the emerging church and how it came about. Part two takes a look at preaching and the emerging church in regards to the message, mentality, and the method. Part three takes another look at preaching and the emerging church, but in regards to contending with Biblical revelation.
To be honest, I have not read the book yet myself as I just discovered it today, but it is free so I am planning on reading it now. Regardless Bohannon has done much more work in regards to the emerging church movement then I have and specifically in regards to preaching. This should be good to at least look at the topic of the emerging church and preaching in more detail by adding to the conversation.
